About the Authors
  • The eleven essays in this volume constitute Kant's theoretical, pre-critical philosophical writings from 1755 to 1770. Several essays have never been translated into English before, while others have long been unavailable. The development of Kant's thought can be traced to the eventual emergence in 1770 of the two chief tenets of his mature philosophy: the subjectivity of space and time, and the phenomena-noumena distinction. Hb ISBN (1992): 0-521-39214-4

    • The first volume published in the Kant series
    • Some of the pieces have never been translated into English before

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This is an excellent edition, a work that should fulfill the high hopes its chief editors place upon the whole series: to serve as an 'instrument of stimulus for the further development of Kant studies by English speaking readers in the century to come.'" The Philosophical Review
